Visited the Harlequin for the first time last Saturday, after a work colleague recommended it.
My main reason for going was that my husband is a big fan of Frank White (guitarist) who was playing live on the Saturday night.
I was pleasantly surprised, it's a real ale pub, the bar staff were real friendly and although the pub was very busy we got served quite quickly.
The atmosphere was friendly and the age group ranged from people in their twenties upwards.
Apparently there is a live turn on most Saturday nights.
Towards the end of the night the landlady brought out some hot nibbles and sandwiches for the customers, what a lovely end to the night.
Frank white was excellent along with the young lad on the keyboards.
I will definitely recommend the Harlequin to all my friends, and hopefully will be going back soon.

Don't know who wrote the last review but they must be on a different planet.
There is a good selection of beer, including a selection of real ales, which the landlord keeps in top quality and prices are the same as neighbouring pubs.
The food is also good quality, homely and plentiful. If you want posh you can go to Aston Hall. We eat there regularly and all the selections are tasty and provide good value for money.
The layout of the pub provides a kiddies room with games and a pool table, upstairs from that is a large display TV. In the main bar there are three areas, each with their own atmosphere. There's the main bar area for those who like to stand, a lounge area with plenty of seating and a third room which provides a quiet area.
The decor is typical for a village pub and the atmosphere is friendly, you'll find people of all ages in there, which I think is always a good sign. Overall a good pub to visit!

Just tried this pub out for the first time it has got some great bargains on for lager and beer but that's where the good things end. The landlord is very ignorant and seems as if he doesn't want to be there, the pub is so cold and not very clean, which is a shame because it is typical old-style pub, which with a bit of care could be a fantastic place to go for a drink.

Had another great meal at this pub - never been disappointed - they keep changing the menu every couple of months so you always have a varied choice. It gets very busy especially on Sundays so you may have to wait a short while for a table but its definitely worthwhile.

Had a great meal here last week.
Tried the belly pork from the specials board and it was fantastic.
My friend tried out the ostrich and he enjoyed that - he's a bit more adventurous than me!
Will certainly recommend it to my mates.
They have a good choice of real ales to satisfy us blokes - get the wife to drive so you can try out a few!

The service was first class and the food was exquisite.
Tom ordered the mixed grill and it was fantastic, for £13 it was a bargain. I literally had half a field on my plate.
Jack had steak and chips and thought it was incredible.
We will give the evening 7/10.

The Horse & Jockey is now under new management and has been refurbished. It has a whole new look and is back to the warm and cosy local pub it used to be, with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
This Saturday the 10th January 2009 there will be live music and each Saturday from then on will either be live music or a disco.
Starting Wednesday the 14th January 2009 they will be having a super quiz with open the box and prizes to be won, every Wednesday.
There will be a can-u-jam night every Thursday starting from the 15th January 09, so if you are a musician or singer and fancy a jam come and try it out.
They are also having a Sunday quiz with raffle every Sunday starting from the 18th January 2009.
So come and try it out for yourself even if only to have a drink and a nosy round all are welcome!

Went to the Old Horns after a group walk on Sunday 28th December 2008. Had an absolutely excellent lunch and very good value as well. Service couldn't be bettered.
Even though it was a busy time and there were about 10 of us, the serving staff found and reserved for us three adjacent tables in the bay window (lovely views) and brought our food reasonably promptly.
A good feature of the Old Horns is that it serves food until 7pm on Sundays - whereas many local pubs tend to finish serving at around 3PM or earlier (nice to have a meal or snack when you've had a walk).
Didn't try the beer as don't drink at lunchtimes for fear of falling asleep - but it's been OK in the past.
The landlord criticised in an earlier review has clearly either left or mended his ways!

An excellent pub with great beer! And the friendliest people I have ever had the good fortune of meeting. Looking forward to having a pint there again very soon.
